Blue Sunday
Posted in Uncategorized on 28 July 2005

Add another small label to the roster for The Roadhouse. Blue Sunday Entertainment has granted permissions to play their artists in The Roadhouse. This is an especially nice addition. Blue Sunday is located in Cedar Rapids, IA, 25 miles north of my home in Iowa City. These are artists I’ve seen locally and followed for […]

Blues Singles
Posted in Uncategorized on 28 July 2005

I’ve added a section in the right sidebar for Singles of the Week. These are outstanding blues cuts by the labels that have given The Roadhouse permissions to play their music in the show. They’re cuts that you’ll eventually hear in The Roadhouse. These are my personal recommendations if you’re looking for some other great […]

A Message To Apple
Posted in Uncategorized on 21 July 2005

The Association of Music Podcasting (AMP), of which I’m a member, has raised a very interesting issue this morning. Let me set the stage a bit. Are you an indie music podcaster? Have you had issues with your listing in iTunes, including long lag times? Is your music podcast listed? Is your music podcast actually […]

Odeized
Posted in Uncategorized on 20 July 2005

It’s really no surprise, but I like what I’m seeing with Odeo. There are some small omissions (importing opml, for example), but, overall, it looks like Odeo will provide a great service for podcast producers and listeners alike, going forward. Even the Odeo Syncr [Win and Mac versions] is easy to use. It’s based on […]

Bite-Sized Blues
Posted in Uncategorized on 19 July 2005

If you like your blues in bite-sized chunks, you’ll like the IndieFeed:Blues channel. I started hosting this for IndieFeed last week and they’re great fun to do. Each episode is a single song, with a little more background on the artist and songs than I might provide in The Roadhouse. All in all, they run […]

Great Music
Posted in Uncategorized on 19 July 2005

I received a nice package from Jan Mittendorp of Black and Tan records yesterday: 10 CDs of recent Black and Tan releases. I immediately set out to rip and drop them into my growing music collection, then push them to the new 60 GB iPod. The morning has been filled with fine, fine blues. It […]

Doc’s finally in with his new podcast. I’m really looking forward to great content in that inimitable Doc Searls style.

The Podcastspherezoneplex
Posted in Uncategorized on 18 July 2005

Brett coined a new phrase to describe the podcasting world. I’m not sure it’ll catch on, but it’s interesting, nonetheless. I’ve got to admit, I didn’t get nearly enough done at work because I was listening to show #21 from Tony. It’s been great finding all the different new music out in the podcastospherezoneplex…what the […]

Pick up your cell or land-line phone. […]

Format Change
Posted in Uncategorized on 4 July 2005

If you’ve already listened to Show 020, you’ve probably noticied a change to the format. I hadn’t tinkered with it for awhile, but this change really seemed to make sense. Unlike previous shows, with 2 musical cuts, a break, 2 more musical cuts, another break, etc., The Roadhouse 020 is 3-2-3-2: 3 cuts, a break, […]
